Why is this called the *nix & *nix forum? Not Unix & Linux?

*nix & *nix Security. Because it covers: Unix, Linux, BSD etc, people were complaining about the title saying "*Nix Security"

cas *nix symbolizes "unix" as a whole. Jesus scallion drop it, I changed it in the first place to people compaling, then a second time, I'm not changing it for a third...

My point is, you have a gaping huge typo on your forums. But you're the boss...

Uhm not really *lol*

1) if people say *nix than they mean all unix based operating systems

2) so if people say *nix security, they mean security of all the unix based operating systems


It's that simple...

Scallion, you seem to think the two words are supposed to be different in the forum topic:

"Why nix & nix, not *nix & *nux?"

When in reality, a true synonym would be:

"Unix/Linux, and Unix/Linux Security" (yes maybe Gizmo should've put a comma in there so you wouldn't get confused)

Seeing it that way, it makes sense that this forum is for discussion anything-related Unix or Linux. Before it was just Unix/Linux Security and people may have thought that any Unix/Linux discussion in this forum MUST be on security.

So as you can see:

"*nix & *nux Security"

does not work in the meaning Gizmo was trying to get across.

Correct...

I was tired of seeing unix and linux posts in general, people though these sections were for security relative postings only. We changed the names FOR this reason.

Heh. I'm happy. Don't worry. It's not like the forum is overflowing with threads
